CIC-rearranged sarcoma is a new entity of undifferentiated small round cell sarcoma characterized by chimeric fusions with CIC-rearrangement. We report a NUTM2A-CIC fusion sarcoma in a 43-year-old woman who died of rapidly progressive disease. Histologic analysis revealed multinodular proliferation of small round tumor cells with mild nuclear pleomorphism. The sclerotic fibrous septa separated the tumor into multiple nodules. Immunohistochemistry showed that the tumor cells were diffusely positive for vimentin, focally positive for cytokeratin, and negative for CD99 and NKX2...

Luminescence quenching at high dopant concentrations generally limits the dopant concentration to less than 1-5 mol% in lanthanide-doped materials, and this remains a major obstacle in designing materials with enhanced efficiency/brightness. In this work, we provide direct evidence that the major quenching process at high dopant concentrations is the energy migration to the surface (i.e. surface quenching) as opposed to the common misconception of cross-relaxation between dopant ions. We show that after an inert epitaxial shell growth, erbium (Er3+) concentrations as high as 100 mol% in NaY(Er)F4/NaLuF4 core/shell nanocrystals enhance the emission intensity of both upconversion and downshifted luminescence across different excitation wavelengths (980, 800, and 658 nm), with negligible concentration quenching effects...

Qingpo Cai, Jessica A Alvarez, Jian Kang, Tianwei Yu
Untargeted metabolomics using high-resolution liquid chromatography - mass spectrometry (LC-MS) is becoming one of the major areas of high-throughput biology. Functional analysis, i.e. analyzing the data based on metabolic pathways or the genome-scale metabolic network, is critical in feature selection and interpretation of metabolomics data. One of the main challenges in the functional analyses is the lack of the feature identity in the LC-MS data itself. By matching mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) values of the features to theoretical values derived from known metabolites, some features can be matched to one or more known metabolites...

Pediatric cardiology fellowship is a very busy time, with new responsibilities, new knowledge, new technology and fast pace. Above and beyond the science and art of pediatric cardiology, we emphasize that our cardiology fellows are in the middle of the "people business", with additional roles and responsibilities as they serve their patients and communities. This manuscript provides insight into these opportunities for our pediatric cardiac professionals.

INTRODUCTION: In this study, we assessed clinical outcomes of patients with brain metastases from a gastrointestinal (GI) primary cancer and patterns of failure after stereotactic radiosurgery including failure within the radiosurgical volume, distant failure and leptomeningeal failure (LMF). We also assessed other factors associated with the patients' neurologic and extraneuraxial disease that may affect clinical outcomes. METHODS: We reviewed our institutional series of 62 consecutive patients with brain metastases treated with stereotactic radiosurgery, which included 17 patients with oesophageal, 44 patients with colorectal and one patient with anal canal primary...

OBJETIVE: To evaluate left ventricular mechanical dyssynchrony (LVMD) associated to prolonged right ventricular pacing through an innovative imaging technique, as a pilot study in Uruguay. METHODS: We performed 99mTc-MIBI gated-SPECT and phase analysis in 12 patients with pacemakers implanted at least one year before scintigraphy due to advanced atrioventricular block. Clinical data, QRS duration, rate, mode and site of pacing in right ventricle, chamber diameters, presence and extension of myocardial scar and ischemia and rest LVEF were recorded...

When and why did you develop an interest in research? After completing my master's thesis at Emory University in Georgia, United States, I realised that I enjoyed the precise and methodological approach of scientists in their pursuit of answering compelling health problems. I started out interested in children's health and engagement of their families and I have maintained that initial interest in promoting health and preventing disease in children.

INTRODUCTION: Tobacco use among transgender adults continues to be an area of research with few reported findings. The limited literature indicates higher cigarette use among transgender adults, compared with the general population. This national study is the first to report on cigarettes, cigars, and e-cigarettes by examining differences in transgender tobacco use independent of sexual orientation. METHODS: Data were collected in 2013 using a nationally cross-sectional online survey of U...

Oesophageal cancers are prominent worldwide; however, there are few targeted therapies and survival rates for these cancers remain dismal. Here we performed a comprehensive molecular analysis of 164 carcinomas of the oesophagus derived from Western and Eastern populations. Beyond known histopathological and epidemiologic distinctions, molecular features differentiated oesophageal squamous cell carcinomas from oesophageal adenocarcinomas. Oesophageal squamous cell carcinomas resembled squamous carcinomas of other organs more than they did oesophageal adenocarcinomas...

We recently showed that Quantitative Perfusion SPECT (QPS), Emory Cardiac Toolbox (ECTb) and 4-Dimension-Myocardial SPECT (4DM) yielded discordant results in the assessment of perfusion defect size (PDS) in patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease. In this report, we examined the sources of variability in the measurement of PDS using ECTb (VarECTb), 4DM (Var4DM) and QPS (VarQPS) and found that gender is a source of variability in the assessment of PDS. In 120 patients, VarECTb was lower in men, compared with women, whereas Var4DM and VarQPS were similar between both genders...

Xin Lu, Brent A Johnson
Dysphagia is a primary cause of death among patients diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a procedure to insert a tube into the stomach to assist or replace oral feeding. It is believed that PEG is beneficial and, generally, earlier insertion is preferable to later. However, gathering clinical evidence to support these beliefs on the use and timing of PEG is challenging because controlled clinical trials are not feasible and clinical endpoints are confounded with PEG in observational data...

OBJECTIVES: The Faces, Legs, Activity, Cry, and Consolability (FLACC) scale is one of the most widely utilized observational pain assessment scales in clinical practice. Although designed and validated to assess postoperative pain, the tool is currently applied to assess acute pain in multiple settings, including the emergency department. Scarce literature exists evaluating the reliability of the FLACC scale in the nonsurgical population and none in the emergency department. We sought to investigate the reliability of the FLACC scale in assessing acute pain in the pediatric emergency department and to examine the sensitivity of FLACC scores after the administration of analgesia...
